The birds and the bees (and one large beetle)

by | Dec 29, 2006 | South Africa, Travel

Besides the flowers in the Helderberg nature reserve we also saw a variety of birds, including the two weaver birds shown below (male and female respectively).

At the nearby Morgenster and Verglegen wine estates we did some wine and olive tasting and enjoyed the incredible gardens, which hosted the bee and beetle pictured below.
